My GP (general practitioner) refused to explain my blood test which was for RA (Positive Factor) I got the feeling he didn't know how to read the test results.
Consequently every GP at my last (NHS Clinic) informed something different. They do not accept RA flare-ups.
Since my late 30s I have had swollen/painful feet and legs. GPs suggested its wear and tear (I know it seemed weird to be told at 30 something especially since I did not live a fast life or sporty one) while some said it looked like an infection. Now I am more or less homebound since I am unable to wear shoes and walk when there's flare-up- and the last GP would not accept my request for a GP home visit. I also have trouble with kidneys whereby I am not frequenting the ladies as often as I should however when I do, it is dark. None of the GPs have looked at my urine or considered referring my case to a RA specialist (one GP did refer me to RA Specialist but another GP at the same clinic cancelled it without notification to me)
I would appreciate advice on the matter and do I have anything to worry about? Does RA appear one year and disappear another year? The chemist that checked out the blood tests said its criminal how the GPs have behaved towards me.
